I have been following this Steorn saga since the first Advertisement in the Economist in 2006 for the Jury of scientists to come and look at their
technology. Steorn said that the reason for the jury was because the normal scientific establishment (universities and the like) would not look at
their technology, or the ones that did look at it didn’t want to go public with any validation of it for various reasons.
So Steorn advertised for a panel of scientists to come and look at this technology over a set period. A demo using a variant of the Orbo technology
which was based on only permanent magnets failed when they attempted to to show it a couple of years ago.
The Jury eventually came back with a result, however due to various reasons (lack of data etc.) the scientists decided that there was not enough
information to provide a verdict and therefore released a report saying that as far as they knew the Orbo technology did not produce more energy that
Since then Steorn have been working on putting together a new demo where they would give a full demonstration of there technology. This is the demo
that is being shown in Dublin right now.
On Saturday they did a live experiment (streamed on the web and live in the Waterways centre) to show that their Orbo did not produce
counter-electromagnetic force when a load was placed on it. This supposedly is what gives Orbo the ability to produce more power than it can consume.
As normally CEMF increases as a load is placed on a motor causing you to input more current to generate more kinetic energy.
Since that talk took place, various people have picked apart the experiment, asked questions etc. and Steorn will be re-visiting the initial talk and
improving the experiment with suggestions to try to resolve concerns etc. These new experiments and the rest of the demonstration will resume in early
However, since the talk on Saturday, third parties have tried replicating the toriodal coil system and have successfully used it to electronically
shield the core of the coil from a magnet (experiments have been posted on YouTube). So it is possible that the device IS doing what Steorn are saying
that it is doing.
Steorn have said that there will be more experiments shown in a step-by-step basis all the way up to a full comparison of the input vs output of the
Orbo towards the end of the demonstration period (end of January), along with third party validation.
So it looks like we don’t really have much longer to wait before we will see if they are telling the truth or not.
What I find interesting about the whole thing is the fact that it seems to split people down the middle - not sceptical to believer, but closed to
open minded people. Just because something hasn’t ever been done, does not mean that it will never be done. Surely previous history has shown
If this doesn’t work - then it is just another company with a technical gizmo that didn’t work as expected. If it does work - then it has the
potential to change human society for good.
January looks like it is going to be interesting however the outcome, but I hope for the latter, but we shall see.
